Venezuela: Maduro supporters rally on May Day

May Day in Venezuela kicked off with a massive rally in support of President Nicolas Maduro as thousands of government supporters gathered at a central plaza in the capital Caracas. The show of strength is meant to send a strong message to his opponents in a country that has seen violent protests amid a worsening economy. Some people blame Maduro for mishandling the tense situation in Venezuela, but others are still willing to give him a chance. Al Jazeera's Mariana Sanchez reports from Caracas.
